Sorry im late mutherfuckers..but it was a long way back from hell...
What makes shit fuckin great...As much as i like to sit in a darkened room of solitude.where that wicked feeling of godless runs through my blackened soul...I still like cool shit..Im feeling like throwing out a little dirty black summer soon..and when i do its gonna be closely related to This whole Midstate cross thing...I dont mind the pain and I don't live in the past either but the scene needs to get on the same page..
I aint saying Im the One...but this whole MBRA series and fall cross is on the five finger crawl from where death had no name...
stick around and when she rides she's gonna bring power rankings with her...

Brent Bookwalter, runner-up at this year’s USA Pro Challenge, has renewed his contract with BMC Racing for 2016. The U.S.-registered team announced Wednesday that the 31-year-old American will continue his eight-year tenure with the red and black outfit.
“This is where I feel like I am home and where I have been able to grow and develop and find personal success while helping the team achieve many of its goals as well,” Bookwalter said. “I feel like it is a great relationship and partnership, and it is really exciting to be able to continue it for another year.”
He won a stage of the USA Pro Challenge in August and led the race for two days before finishing second to teammate Rohan Dennis. Bookwalter was also twice runner-up on stages at the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah on his way to third-place overall and the points classification title.
“Brent has brought years of high performance and unselfish sacrifices to his fellow teammates, yet he continues to find many individual successes himself,” BMC Racing Team president/general manager Jim Ochowicz said. “His presence on the starting line always gives the team a feeling of confidence.”
After joining the team in 2008, Bookwalter finished runner-up in the stage 1 individual time trial of the 2010 Giro d’Italia. In 2011, he rode the Tour de France in support of that year’s winner, Cadel Evans. In 2013, he won the opening stage of the Tour of Qatar on the way to a runner-up finish overall.
“The success I have been able to find is a testament to a lot of hard work and commitment from myself, the people who are close to me and from the BMC Racing Team,” Bookwalter continued. “I have been fortunate to have close advisors, family and friends who have helped me develop and continue to progress. It has been fulfilling to step into a leadership role when the opportunity arises, and I am looking forward to more of these opportunities in 2016. Whether it is working for others as a teammate, or continuing my path as a more veteran rider of the team, I feel like I am still improving and have yet to reach my best level.”
Bookwalter will compete for the final time this season in Sunday’s UCI World Road Championships before organizing the second running of his “Bookwalter Binge Gran Fondo” next month in Black Mountain, N.C.

Smart people come to you in different ways...just when you didn't think your circle couldnt get any bigger..Bam...someone wonders into it unexpectedly and drops there mind on you...
And you thought this was gonna be a dry fall...a fall left up to only random bits of bullshit posts, some worn out rockers and the same redundant list of this opinionated asshole of what he thinks is bad-ass...yeas fools the grammar hasn't gotten any better...
Lets talk cross real quick ain't gonna take up too much of your time..and to be frank i got shit to do...But when one of the hardest dudes to come outta of the scene in long time..a man who cut his teeth here says..to T..."Michigan-scene in a whole is in a weird state...even the road scene/mtb scene kinda in a funk right now......but for the hell of it cross. in general...There are some good crossers that have come outta this place in the years...and there are some good riders right now right here...without naming names..none of them show up at the same time...instead choosing to go elsewhere for various reasons" whther it be for grip/chicks..or depth of field...It used to be back in the day guys like the Rhino crew, Sorry and the Wiz, the lillest Pony and the whole Blue Wave thing would travel to the bigger races..with the end all be all of a USGP GP title or nationals as the fixation...Now the scene is just alil more random..Im betting all my 80's pop Rock star trading cards that this is the year of transition...kinda thought last year was..but for the sake of fate..lets hope were heading in the right direction...i hear we are losing that Hofie kid..pity cuz he cross needs guys like him young..does his own thing with no attitude..good kid..I ain't saying the that the podiums are soft..T knows cross is hard anyway you slice it....but man o man we need to revive this shit...I wish i had the answer, and time....call it a ramble or rant..call whatever..i just had to get that off my old worn out chest...
Ill leave you with this...best advice T ever got...
